In The Cloud: Azure Cosmos DB

Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s new global scale, distributed database as a service that supersedes Azure Document DB. Cosmos is a technology that enables you to create applications that are unimaginable with a single conventional relational database, even if the single relational database is stored in the cloud. Cosmos is something you need to know more about if you make your living working with data.

Read more about Azure Cosmos DB here. If you want to try code against Cosmos and you don’t have an Azure account or don’t want to incur usage charges, you can download and install the Azure Cosmos DB Emulator. Some of the documentation refers to Document DB instead of Cosmos. Remember, Cosmos supersedes Document DB.
